Why live or invest in the Northeast Kingdom?

This  rural area is one of New England's most beautiful pastoral and wooded  unspoiled realms and has long been one of Vermont's best kept secrets.

The  Northeast Kingdom has been listed in the North American and  international editions of "1,000 Places to See Before You Die", the New  York Times best-selling book by Patricia Schultz. In 2006, the National  Geographic Society named the Northeast Kingdom as the most desirable  place to visit in the country and the ninth most desirable place to  visit in the world!

The Northeast Kingdom offers the  type of year round recreation not to be found in many other places. From  mountain biking on groomed trails with spectacular vistas, to skiing  some of the most challenging terrain in the east, to golfing and hiking.  Burke Mountain recently purchased by the Ginn Company of Florida has  been busy with expanding snow making, renovating the lodges and planning  a huge expansion in the housing units on the mountain. With over 2000  feet of vertical drop, Burke offers some of the most challenging skiing  in the east. This is a year-round recreation region known for fall  foliage, dairy farms, famous Cabot cheese, snowmobiling, farmer's  markets, and maple syrup. Home buyers seeking a family friendly  lifestyle rich in natural four season wonder and old New England  solitude, slower-pace, and charm, are discovering what it is all about  to be a Vermonter with a home in the Kingdom.

Northeast Kingdom Employment and Higher Education

The  service communities in the area, such as St. Johnsbury, Newport, and  Lyndonville, have no shortage of employment for both part time and many  full time positions. Our local center for higher learning, Lyndon State  College on Vail Hill, in Lyndon, VT, is fully accredited by the New  England Association of Schools & Colleges and offers associates,  bachelors and masters degrees. LSC has 12 varsity athletic programs  competing in Division III of the NCAA. LSC's Channel 7 News was awarded  the Nation's Best College Newscast for 2004 by the Academy of Television  Arts & Sciences Foundation. Lyndon State is forever expanding and  offers employment opportunities as well as a wide array of degree  programs and educational opportunities. EHV Weidmann, Fairbanks Scales,  Lydall Industries and NSA are just a few of the full time employment  opportunities in the area.

Northeast Kingdom Area Schools

Towns  in the Northeast Kingdom have a public elementary school or union  school for your children to attend. There are also many private school  options for those interested, for example Riverside School in Lyndon or  The East Burke School in East Burke. The Steven's School in Peacham is a  private school serving fifth through eighth grade students as they make  the considerable transition from elementary to high school. Lyndon  Institute and St. Johnsbury Academy are well-respected semi-private  college preparatory secondary schools offering a multitude of  opportunities for local students and dorm residents. One of the most  appealing aspects of some of the small communities in the Kingdom is  that they allow you to choose the school you wish your children to  attend.

Buying a home is a big decision and a personal one.

You need the experts at Morrill & Guyer to find a home that suits your needs.

So you've decided to buy a home, land, or investment property in the Kingdom!

Purchasing  real estate is a complex and major transaction with many details to be  handled.  It is important for you to understand that the real estate  agent that shows you available properties most often will be  actually negotiating for the seller, not you, the buyer. The best way to be certain that an agent is working in your best  interests is by signing a buyer representation agreement with us. At  Morrill & Guyer Associates we represent both buyers and sellers of  real estate, but not at the same time. At Morrill & Guyer when we enter into an agreement with you as a buyer, we work for you, not the seller, and owe fiduciary responsibility to you, the real estate buyer. We have  buyer's best interests in mind throughout the entire real estate  process.

Working with a dedicated buyer agent on your next home  purchase will save you time and add professional assurance to every step  of the process. With the guarantee of a solid investment, the decision  could also make you more wealthy when it's time to sell. To get in touch  with us today, please contact us whenever you'd like.

Research reported to us by the National Association of REALTORS shows that when  a buyer's representative is used, the prospective buyer found a home  one week faster on average and examined three more properties than  consumers who did not use a buyer's representative.

The Home Buying Process

As  you begin to think about buying a home, you're probably acutely aware  that this is likely to be your greatest investment ever (short of  children or a good marriage), and you might be wondering if there's  anything you really need to know as you go into this process.  This is where the real estate professionals at Morrill & Guyer  Associates come in. With the help of a trained agent or broker, you can  come out on top of a closing that otherwise might have pushed your  retirement ahead a decade! This happens all the time to buyers who are  left reflecting on the relatively small commission that could have  brought a Realtor into the bargain to help them.
